Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Big shout out to Alex from Grampian Escapes and Tours for my tour of Aberdeenshire today. A thoroughly enjoyable and informative day, topped off with a visit to the iconic Dunnottar Castle. Highly recommended.

Jacqueline (guide) provided a superb service and day out! The tour went on even though only 2 people have booked. Jacqueline gave a lot of insights about the culture and history of the places we went to and she also brought along a great variety of local food to try. I really enjoyed the trip!

first foray into a guided tour alone. what a fantastic initiation! from the moment of arrival until the final farewell, Alex (our host par excellence) felt like a lifetime friend. his knowledge and interest was captivating. our visit to Balmoral and various points throughout the Royal Dee were worth every moment of our day. hope to return some day to experience more of the Highlands! thank you, Grampian Escapes, for such a memorable experience!

I was solo but it didn’t feel like that - on both trips I took. Small groups with an extremely knowledgeable owner/guide. Saw castles, landscapes, villages of different vintages and had our questions, seemingly obscure, answered with history, then and now. Jacqueline has others tours that I will take when I return. Can’t stay away long from Scotland!

We took two tours Wednesday to Balmoral Castle and Royal Deeside and Thursday to the Whiskey tasting tour, castle and ice cream! Our tour guide Jacqueline was wonderful, knowledgeable and a really great driver! We can believe we saw so much in two days. Great history, great views, great conversations with Jacqueline! We look forward to taking more tours on our next visit.

I went on the « Coastal villages of Aberdeenshire » tour as a solo traveler and I was lucky enough to be part of a very small group. It really felt like family. The tour was very interesting with lots of amazing landscapes. Jacqueline, our guide, was super knowledgeable (history, life in Scotland, farming, life at sea, fishing industry, economy, etc.) as well as very kind and attentive to us. I highly recommend this tour and « Grampian Escapes and Tours » in general.
